This is the second book in Heathcote’s Doris series, and I loved this one just as much as I loved the last one, if not more so. Here, septuagenarian Doris Copeland faces competition at the local Women’s Institute and her long-suffering husband ‘arold has to support her as she gets into all sorts of unfortunate situations.

Indisputably Doris builds on the previous book but could also be read as a standalone, although I’d recommend reading both books anyway and so you might as well read them in ord

I've been revising this book since February. It's going on my Read shelf.

Another 4.5 read for me. This book is just as much fun as the first book. I loved that this book really allowed the reader to connect more with Doris and her family and friends. The plot was just as comedic as the first book as well as being a thicker, juicier plot to follow. I just love Doris and it has been just such a pleasure to read. I really enjoy Heathcote’s writing style and I raced through this book as fast as the first. I would recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of light funn ...more

5 out of 5 stars
This is the second book in the our Doris series and I loved it. I love that in this book we get more of Doris back story and see very different sides to her. Centred around the battle for chairwoman with Pandra O’Malley, we see Doris face other problems such as flu, would be elves and an interesting bake sale. We meet Erin who is a young lady who is a single mum trying to better herself. I love watching the side of Doris where she supports her and really takes her under her wings

I received this book as a Giveaway and I enjoyed reading it. It was light and fun, with amusing characters, quirky events and a light narrative style. The book was easy to read and flowed gently through to the end. A great read for those days when you just want to laugh.

I enjoyed this one! Doris Copeland is a very entertaining character! Her struggles with her husband (or his struggles with her) and her own contemporaries made me chuckle more than once! LOL! If you enjoy humor you'll like this one! 4 stars! Cheers everyone!

What can I say?
Our Doris arrived in Indisputably Doris.
From reading Doris's first installment it's hard to imagine her character making a bigger impact but believe me she does.
This book is full of humour, heartfelt moments and most importantly good reading!
I felt the book is a modernised Keeping up Appearances with a splash of the Last of the summer wine.
A very clever story that has you relating to the the characters and wanting to read more.
I was truly upset when this book ended however it did

I liked 'Indisputably Doris', the second installment in the stories of Our Doris. I enjoy Charles Heathcote's YouTube channel and these books are full of his wry humour. It's nice to read stories whose main characters are elderly and where the portrayal is also so warm and funny. If you like old-fashioned comedy, especially Keeping Up Appearances, you might like this series by a fellow indie writer (also his new novella is just out). I liked Our Doris a slightly more, but they're both good. You ...more

Our Doris continues her rampage through Partridge Mews society when her position as Interim Chairwoman of the WI is threatened. This book is chock full of intrigue, carrot cake, and heart-warming moments as 'arold and Doris struggle with her rising profile in the community.

I love Doris and 'arold more with every chapter of this book. They feel real in their everyday turmoil tweaked for maximum comedy. They're already pensioners, but I feel the couple mature in this book as they continue from the
